passing form variables to function

  1. Hi there,
    I need to pass the variables from a massive form to a function that will register a post type with a considerable amount of custom fields etc.

    What I need to know...
    A: How to detect if a checkbox is ticked after form submission etc. I have the following code
    if($entry['22.1']) {
    add_post_meta($post_id,'customfield','value');
    }
    Will this work? Does it need to have a value in the if statement or will the $entry element be empty if not checked?

    B: How to detect the values of a radio group with 'yes' or 'no' answers and do the same thing as above. Again do I need to put in a value if statement and how would I do that? What is the structure of the $entry element on a radio group? Is it $entry['21.2'] or $entry['21_2']?
    Im guessing if there are two answers then
    yes = $entry['21.1'] or $entry['21_1']
    no = $entry['21.2'] or $entry['21_2']

    Thanks in advance for the help guys and keep up the good work, this plugin is seriously spectacular and worth every penny!!!

  2. Hi Tom,

    You are correct for checkboxes.

    For radio buttons, there is a single value submitted for the field (not per input) so you can check it like so:

    [php]
    if($entry[21] == 'yes') {
        // execute 'yes' code
    } else {
        // execute 'no' code
    }
